The woman has no memory of who she is or whats happened to her, and the townspeople believe shes posessed. But Lucy is concerned for the womans well-being and takes her to a physician. When, shockingly, the woman is identified as the daughter of a nobleman, Lucy is asked to temporarily give up her bookselling duties to discreetly serve as the womans companion while she remains under the physicians care. As the woman slowly recovers, she begins-with Lucys help-to reconstruct the terrible events that led her to Holborn Bridge that morning. But when it becomes clear the womans safety might still be at risk, Lucy becomes unwillingly privy to a plot with far-reaching social implications, and shell have to decide how far shes willing to go to protect the young woman in her care.
